Staying Connected

Homes Together appreciates that being away from home can be a distressing time, particularly for family and friends.

That’s why we encourage regular visits to our sites, but realise this is not always possible. As such, we have introduced a Facebook-based service that helps families stay in touch and view updates and pictures on residents’ progress and any activities they have been involved in. All service users’ accounts are private and can only be viewed by authorised family members.

We also have Skype video-calling, should you wish to see and talk to a service user in real time. Of course residents and families can also keep in touch by phone, with some service users also able to use email on their own computers.
